Issues w/activation window and product UI w/high res displays

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I installed EAM on a windows 10 machine with a 4k display, and both the product UI and license login are screwy. The product UI can be resized after logging in, but the login screen is cut off and non-resizable (and any error messages are the wrong DPI so are extremely small).

 

Here's an example:

*EDIT*

product notifications are also borked:

as is the uninstall dialog:

Issues with notifications on high screen resolutions is already known. I'll ask QA if we already know about the others.

Most of these issues appear to be unknown at this time. Could you let us know what scaling setting you're using for your display? For instance, you can see in the following screenshot that mine is 100%:

OK, thank you. I'll let you know if we need any more information.

just in case these weren't known, all of the settings for every product component with a modal dialog (application rules, edit rules, import hosts, add new rule to surf protection, edit extensions for file guard, email notifications, update interval, proxy settings, export settings, set password, connect w enterprise console) are tiny as well.

I'm fairly certain that that's a known issue with all dialogs, however I will ask QA to be certain.

I am having exactly the same issues. Also have a 4K screen. I have already informed David from customer support regarding this. Do you have a time frame when this would be fixed as this has been going on for months now? Its been a very very long time since this has been like this, probably like 3 months.

We don't generally have ETA's on fixes. In software development it is usually impossible to meet an ETA, so rather than disappoint everyone we prefer not to say when something may be done.

I know and understand that. But you know it has been months since this has been like this. My license expires in 49 days and I would like to renew it but if I am unable to use the product properly, I would have to think otherwise. 

Everything worked perfectly before. Is it not possible to get this fixed ASAP please?

Thank you.

Unfortunately I can't increase or decrease the priority of bug reports.

Have you tried changing the DPI to see if things work better at other settings? It may not be ideal, but it might at least make things usable.

Thank you.

have you tried right clicking on the EAM UI application (a2start i think; don't have it installed on this machine) > clicking properties > compatibility tab > high DPI > change to system?

the problem with this on a small (sub 22") 4k display is that it makes everything so small it's unusable. not a particularly suitable workaround, i'm sorry to say. overriding the dpi handling for the UI might help, though.

Windows 10 does have more than one method it can use for scaling, so it's possible that one of the alternate methods might work better.

Tried changing the scaling settings. Still doesn't work. I am overly frustrated now. It has been months but I am sure you would have a defense for that. So, all good :)
